How to Get Firefox’s PDF Viewer in Opera Browser

Google Chrome was the first browser to add PDF viewer right in the browser to view PDF files. Last year Mozilla has also added PDF viewer support to its browser Firefox. What is great with this feature is that it helps you view PDF files online without downloading them to your computer. In addition, you can use your browser as your default PDF Viewer for your computer to read PDF files saved locally.


If you want the PDF viewer function on your Opera browser, now it is possible with the PDF Viewer extension. This extension uses Mozilla's PDF.js to display PDF files directly in Opera. For your information, pdf.js is an HTML5 technology experiment that explores building a faithful and efficient PDF renderer without native code assistance.


 To get PDF viewer function on your Opera browser, install PDF Viewer extension from Opera add-on repository. That’s it. Now, if you want to read PDF files saved in your computer or want to make Opera your default PDF viewer, read below.

In Windows, right click any PDF document and select “Open with” option. Select Opera from the list, enable the check box “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file” and click OK to save the selection.
